TimTam and Tommy
So I rode TimTam and Tommy today and they were both really good! I had to wait until the afternoon to ride as I went out before but it started pouring down, so we waited the rain out TimTam was being so scopey though, I loved it.
QOTD: Would you rather ride a top show jumper horse or top dressage horse?
Sporting Horse president and @wintec.saddles ambassador Matt Burns headed to Cockatoo Pony Club on the weekend for some training and coaching with their members! What a great day, hopefully we get to see some of these lovely riders in the near future! Thanks @mattsportinghorse for your hard work and dedication to our sport!
MEGA MARE Brilliant day at PC Area Eventing!! Heather pulled out a fab dressage test to get our PB of 26.2!!! I was thrilled a we’ve been working SO HARD on it! She then did a cracking clear showjumping leaving us in 1st place going into XC, she flew round clear picking up a couple time (ground was like cement) to drop us to 3RD So we are off to PC CHAMPIONSHIPS!! Team also came 4th which was amazing So so pleased and well done to my awesome team She tried so hard in the heat and crazy ground and I’m so proud of her!! Full videos to come! #byrneskillruby#byrneskillbeast#areas#ponyclub#doubleclesr#eventing
That was completely my fault so sorry Dancer!! #failfriday - late fail Friday >> SWIPE FOR HIM JUMPING IT! Really excited for area 12 eventing this weekend! Who else is going? Also going to the gallops with @lilbesj tomorrow which will be fun hopefully! #woottenheathsnowstorm
Disappointing day today at Pony Club area 15 showjumping- ended up being eliminated in both our rounds The first was a very full up 80cm with lots of fillers and we had a stop at the second and two stops at the fourth which unfortunately meant elimination
Decided to have a go at the 85cm because I didn’t want to let the team down even though I knew it was too big - two stops at the second and one stop at the third which again meant elimination
Gutted is an understatement and it’s so frustrating because we’ve jumped those exact fences so many times at Pony Club but just goes to show sometimes it just doesn’t go to plan.
Today wasn’t our day and it’s not his fault at all, just nerves got the better. Considering it’s only our second showjumping competition and by far our biggest show I’m so proud of him! He behaved amazingly even when stood waiting between classes
Not sure on team placings yet
Just going to take it back and build it up so at the lower levels first onwards and upwards from here!

After years of struggle with this obstinate horse, I'm so happy that he's enjoying his job and is becoming confident and even trying to pull me to jumps. He got me thru my D3 certification, even boldly jumping XC jumps he hadn't seen before. I think we finally found the right treatment for his wood allergy! #ponyclub#ironhorseridingcenter#ottb#fingerscrossed#ithinkillkeephim
Happy Sunday! Hope you all get to do something fun today. Yesterday we had so many kids at saddle club, that we had to rotate through the horses a bit. There was a time when we were all cruising around waiting for Rusti to finish up with one of our peewee riders before we went on a trail ride, and Maeve didn’t have a horse to ride. No problem! Weston is a pro at packing around an extra. I’m sure he appreciated that Maeve is a light weight.
